Most commonly, this relates to sulfides or other impurities in the water itself, but may also be caused by a buildup of food soil within the washer. Smell a clean glass of water. Does it smell stale also? If no, clean the screens and wash water sump/tank within the machine.
You can also clean the inside of the machine by using a commercial grade dish machine detergent and increasing water temp if possible.
If the water smells stale, consult a local water expert for guidance in resolving

Smell of stale water from Avanti compact washer


It may not be draining very well.

I have a front load washer and run a cycle of a few cups of bleach through mine every couple months.

I also add vinegar to most washes but that's due to my teenage son's athletic wear.

Both those things do the trick.

You shoudl probably check the mechanics as well but the above is a stop gap.

Check the inside for wearing of plastics or dirt accumulated on the TUB. use some vinegar to wash the tub and clearr off using detergent.
if the smell persists you must check inside for dirt accumulation in the drain or the inner tub.

Front loader smells like stale cigarettes during cycle


Make sure that you are using high efficiency (he) detergent. Pour 2 cups of vinegar in the tub and fill the detergent tray with vinegar. Run it on the hottest, longest cycle. You can also use a Front load cleaner such as Afresh, made by Whirpool. I think that Tide makes one too. Vinegar is usually readily available. At the end of washing for the day, leave the door to the washer slightly open so that fresh air can get in and dry it out keeping moldy, milduey smell down. If it mildews, use a rag and bleach water to clean the boot seal. Hope this helps.

Foul Smell from my GE Adora Washer..!


Having the same problem as everyone else , I make a habit of cleaning the filter once a month. I would like to advise people that if your load is heavy (such as scatter rugs) they will not spin out completely even when the filter is cleaned. No more GE for me!!
